to say for the country, only nasty words to spew about the people running it or hoping to. john mccain, who served the country so admirably, has become an angry fellow from dawn until dusk taking an occasional break to remember who he is and saying enough of this when his new allies get out of hand. when ted cruz starts attacking the loyalty to america of one of mccain's fellow vietnam vets, a combat vet at that. the viciousness is something we haven't seen before because of the combination of mccarthyism and this weird unconnectedness, attacking chuck hagel, for example, because no one will give us info or anyone info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard
any more. john mccain and lindsey graham because every damn sunday, you turn on the sunday shows. who has their ugly mugs on t.v.? john mccain and lindsey graham on every one of the freakin shows. sometimes more than one. but if they are not on fox, they are on abc. if they are not on ab. c, they are on the "meet the press." if they are not on "meet the press" they are on quite state of the union." they are always dumping on everything obama is doing over and over and over. there are 100 senators. right? alt every sunday do we have to here that idiot lindsey graham from south carolina who has become the biggest scourge of the republican party, the u.s. senate and john mccain who ish something maybe to say 20 years ago but he doesn't have today. it's the same ol' gabble. there they were again yesterday, trotting them out, lindsey graham was on face the nation, and john mccain on fox news sunday. so lindsey graham still doesn't know enough about benghazi and he is not going to let chuck hagel go forward unless we find out some more. >> i don't think
more lit reconciliation can i use? listen to how david gregory pressed john mccain over the weekend where he stands and where he feels about chuck hagel. take a listen. >> it is payback time for chuck hagg hagel, that's what this amounted to. >> of course not. we will have a vote when we get back and i am confident senator hagel will probably have the votes necessary. >> you're not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no. i don't believe he is qualified. i don't believe that we should hold up his nomination any further. >> i don't believe he is qualified. susan, when did john mccain lose complete and utter faith in his old buddy, the person that he would have nominated for defense secretary if john mccain had won back in 2000? >> one argues it happened while he was running for election and didn't get the support and when hagel supported barack obama for president. that aside, the bigger problem is what happened in the senate. we now have left this nominee who will get confirmed weaker for t they should have allowed the president's choice to go through plain and simple unless they foun
for cloture and move on to his nomination. >> that's right. senators john mccain and lindsey graham will vote to end debate on the confirmation of chuck hagel, eventually, but today, they just didn't feel like it. they towed the party line and voted to block hagel's nomination. the procedural vote failed 40-58 with one senator voting present and one senator not voting. 54 democrats voted in favor as did four republicans. no cabinet member nominated for a national security post has ever been filibustered. only two cabinet secretary nominees in history have been filibustered. both eventually cleared their cloture votes 85-8. and both were eventually easily confirmed. today, senate majority leader harry reid knew he did not have the votes to clear the republican procedural hurdle, but scheduled a vote anyway to demonstrate this. >> republicans have made an unfortunate choice to ratchet up the level of destruction here in washington. there's nothing going to change in the next ten days about the qualifications of chuck hagel. i guess to be able to run for the senate as a republican in most places
supported. it goes back really to the way you led this segment, which is with rand paul and john mccain and others talking about do the democrats want to do something or do they just want to -- they know the answer to that. the democrats passed the dream act in the house in 2010. john mccain was part of the republican filibuster against a majority of votes in the senate to advance the dream act and put it on the president's desk. there are many criticisms you can make about both parties being very opportunistic. that's what political parties are. they look for political opportunities, but we have a record here. both parties know the record. this group of democrats has done everything can you do facing obstruction to try to pass the dream act, which is stronger, according to many emgregs advocates, than what we have on the table now. >> that's because it was done by executive order, right? jose, really quickly before we let you go, are the -- the president is talking about march for immigration reform. how bullish or bearish are you on that date? >> i think by the end of the senate will
's the bottom line, and the message was delivered by mr. straight talk, john mccain, yesterday. ultimately, hagel's issues with his former gop colleagues are simply personal. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel, because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush, mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover. said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti-his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> there you go. a delay is never a good thing, because it does give hagel's opponents additional time to try to torpedo his nomination. the fact that hagel essentially got 59 votes, including four from republicans, suggest that he's likely to be confirmed when this vote comes up again on february 26th. the fact is hagel's going to be a weakened secretary of defense in all of this. is that damage temporary or permanent? yesterday also highlighted a growing problem with the gop, that they are dealing, and one many republicans outside of d.c. fret about. it's clear what the gop
're not on the right anymore. this is the new litmus test. let's listen to john mccain who has been on a couple sides of this things. he said a short time ago on fox news this. let's watch. >> they'll probably get the votes when we return from the recess unless something else -- unless another something pops up, and that's doubtful that it will. but to be honest with you, neil, it goes back to there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people don't forget that. >> that seems honest. let's go to senator claire mccaskill who has been tough in dealing on the armed services committee with some of the zealots. i try to find political motive, why is ted cruz, the new kid on the block, acting so ferociously? why are they doing this to a guy who is a middle of the roader? i don't get it. your thoughts, senator? >> i think it's extremism. i think th
in washington, d.c. that can do sunday shows? john mccain would be good. >> yeah, he's 234not going to v for him. at the earliest, it won't happen until lawmakers return to washington next week after a ten-day recess. senator john mccain, one of hagel's most outspoken critics, pushed back against suggestions that his opposition was meant to settle old scores. >> is it payback time for chuck hagel? that's what this process has amounted to? >> of course not. 99% of it is to do with the positions that senator hagel has taken. the positions he's taken on various issues has frankly been not only out of the mainstream but far to the left. we will have a vote when we get back, and i'm confident that senator hagel will probably have the votes necessary to be confirmed as the secretary of defense. we have an obligation of advice and consent. i don't intend to give those up when other senators continue to have reasonable questions. i mean reasonable. >> but you're not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no, i don't believe he's qualified, but i don't believe that we should hold up his nomination any furthe
. and arizona senator, john mccain, who suggested the white house has a greater strategy at play. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. does the president really want a result or does he want anoth another -- to beat up republicans? >> the president's new chief of staff is defending this back-up plan saying the administration is only doing what it promised to do from the very beginning. >> we're doing exactly what the president said we would do last month in las vegas, which is we're preparing, we're going to be ready. let's make sure it doesn't have to be proposed. let's make sure that that group up there, the gang of eight, makes a good progress on these efforts, as much as they say they want to. >> all right. so if the leak proves anything, this president and the white house is working on an immigration reform plan. joining me is texas democratic congressman henry quayar. some saying the legislation is half-backed and seriously flawed and would make our immigration problems worse. from what you've learned about what the white house has crafted, this rough draft, what's your first
on the hill. >> there is, it make no mistake about it. john mccain put it bluntly that his state would be a blue state. ann coulter has already, against marco rubio, saying that all you're doing is creating more democratic voters with a path to citizenship, just like you did with easy divorce, in her judgment. >> does she have a point, colby? >> as far as rubio is concerned? >> creating more democratic votes. >> they will " more democratic until republicans, with policies that attract their attention. when you bring people into the system as obama's healthcare does, that his policy. you will not change that with marco rubio's face. >> were you watching when the lights went out at the super bowl? it happens in washington a lot. >> the interruptions in service did not occur inside the building. >> the system worked -- that is what they said after watergate. [laughter] why did the lights go off in the superdome? the power co. said it was a faulty device they installed. in any case, it brings me to the question of infrastructure. a couple of years ago, the world economic forum rated as 23r
, even the republican senator john mccain projects a million jobs lost, a 1/3 in active duty and active military people in uniform and 2/3 in support jobs and would shrink ships and troops and intelligence gathering and troop inspection. >> the pentagon pulled out all stops and panetta, the defense secretary, started putting out these dire numbers, 800,000 civilian jobs at the pentagon furloughed, 20% cut in pay after he gave a very angry speech at georgetown university, within hours the panic, they put out there will only be one aircraft carrier in the persian gulf and is a big issue for the republicans. >> there's not enough, is there? >> there's been two there the past two years. chris: again, the president wants to go big picture and talk big picture and he's confronted with this. >> it's a big issue for the house republicans because there's a big division there. you've got some of the tea party conservatives saying you know what, this is the best we'll get on cuts so we're going to eat the defense cuts because the cuts are shared across the board. and there are lots of republicans,
anybody else in america and that's the challenge that we have. >> senator john mccain has tweeted he's dispossibilitied he didn't speak about syria tonight and didn't spend a lot of time op international issues, is that something you wanted to hear tonight? >> you know what i really wanted to hear? i wanted to hear how we're both going to work together. what i wanted as kind of a first priority, the first priority of where we currently are today with the 16 trillion dollar deficit, a pox on both houses if you don't pass a budget. i want to see a budget passed and i want to see something that's balanced, balanced. and you've got a senate where how ironic, he's got the ceo of apple sitting up with the first lady and the last time the democrats in the senate passed a budget, the ipad wasn't even introduced yet and now they're on what, their third version, the mini ipad even. you can't get everything he wants to got done without first laying out a plan. >> the american people heard the president,heard the response of senator marco rubio and the tea party response we put on gretawire.com
palin. not because they thought she was a threat. >> oh, yes they did. that's when john mccain's numbers spiked when she was announced. >> bill: i would like to thank kirsten powers in not mentioning me i know she wanted to lowering the maturity age down to 5 years old. i know i'm part of that howard kurtz criticizing me for my drone coverage. he will enter the no spin zone. dennis miller on the state of dennis miller on the state of the union and the pope get 36 months interest-free financing and save up to $500 on beautyrest and posturepedic. dennis miller on the state of the union and the pope get a sealy queen set for just $399. even get 3 years interest-free financing on tempur-pedic. but only through presidents' day at sleep train. >> bill: personal story segment tonight. howard kurtz on cnn said i misspoke when criticizing nbc news analysis of the drone situation. >> well, that's kind of curious, given it was an nbc scoop, so o'reilly obviously misspoke and i thought he would just come back the next night and correct the record. bill, the only reason there is a drone debate right
to climate change like john mccain and joe lieberman worked on a few years ago. >> it may have been good enough for mccain and lieberman but not today's lunatic congressional republicans, many who are sh. caller: lls of the fossil fuel industry. the president was challenged today: >> here's why. in the past five years barasso has received $5 million from the facile fuel industry. 90% of the time, he voted in their interest. very helpful senator. he sits on both the senate energy and environmental committees. faced with that kind of opposition, the president says if he has to, he'll by pass congress and issue an executive action. >> if congress won't act soon to protect future generations i will. i will direct. [ applause ] >> i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollution prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> the president did the same on another big progressive issue raising the minimum wage, beating the republicans to the economic
republicans from the hab gel nomination. >> reporter: senator john mccain said what we've been reporting which is after this recess the senate will up the nomination and the expectation senator chuck hagel will votes necessary to be confirmed. his colleague, senator lindsey graham explained why. >> because i do believe the president has great deference. here's the question for of the country. can we do better than that? i think so. the president chose a controversial nominee that refuses to sign letters supporting israel during the 2000 infin todd today. refused to iranian guard as terrorist organization. refused to sign a letter asking the e.u. designates hezbollah as a terrorist organization. >> reporter: graham called him one most unqualified, radical choices for secretary of defense in a long time, jenna. jenna: those comments out there. the obama administration not too happy about the comments and the process being held up. what is the administration saying about why it need the new national security team now? >> reporter: keep in mind the smart considering nominations for new secretary o
's going to be an interview and they expect it to go through, john mccain and others are going to vote against. we had the votes in terms of the cloture vote on friday, on wednesday, rather, in terms of having 58 votes, but now what is this whole issue of the rutgers speech? >> i think it's all about sort of desperate search to find something. usually when you are asking questions about a nominee, and i'm a really big dlooefr believer in oversight and the advisory process, but usually you have a reason to think there's someone there. this is just scouring the kitchen cabinets and seeing if you can find any little dust balls any place, and i think they are just -- you and i have seen it so many times. if you can run out the clock enough, maybe something will come up, and this is just sort of playing for that end of the football game moment of something turning up. he will be confirmed, and i have to say i don't think he performed well at all, to put it mildly, in the hearings. i also think especially this last stretch makes republicans look terrible also. >> let's look at lindsey graham
. chris, what was that shout out to john mccain and joe lieberman about? that seemed to make john mccain unhappy? >> he did his patented grimace smile. it was a standard cap and trade bill along the framework of what would later be passed by the house of representatives after president and killed in the senate because no republics republicans would support it. john mccain and joe lieberman in three sessions introduced bills to put a cap on carbon and that amount would have gone down year for year. what democrats tried to pass in 2009 and could not get done. it was a reminder to the republicans that there was a remarkable and in my time covering politics, lurch backwards. newt gingrich was haunted by sitting with nancy pelosi endorsing it. john mccain favored cap and trade. all of that has been undone and destroyed as the republican party has put this in this shrinking denial of the political strain. i think the president was trying to point that out and that's why john mccain felt uncomfortable. >> sitting between two democratic senators and wishing he wasn't. he said i am not going to u
. >> thank you. >> we'll deal with more of this later in the show. ahead, john mccain has a personal grudge and he's actually admitting it. and those screams you hear are coming from wall street. elizabeth warren gets to work and it's explosive. >>> nothing says changs like carl "meltdown" rove. bik show coming. stay with us: >>> have you joined the "politics nation" conversation on facebook yet? we hope you will. the committee hearing was a big hit. donna says there's a new sheriff in town. jane says she is what we needed for so long. jay says this is why i contributed to her campaign, even though i live in georgia. we've got more on warren and why wall street is scared already coming up later. but, first, we need you to come share your thoughts. please head over to facebook and search politics nation and like us to join the conversation that keeps going long after the show ends. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness
with eleanor about the opposition to the nominee john hhagel. here is senator john mccain on "meet the press." >> we feel he will have the votes to be confirmed as the secretary of defense. i don't intend to give those up when other senators continue to have reasonable questions. i mean reasonable. >> you are not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no, i don't believe he is qualified. i don't believe we should hold up his nomination any further. >> can you tell me what is going on here, eleanor with this? we have a week delay and probably going to be confirmed. >> senator hagel supported barack obama over john mccain. i think it is very personal with mccain. i think with other republicans, they are looking ahead to the 2014 races and they don't want to be primaried from the right. they have to look tough here. in the end, they are saying he will get through. he will get through without perhaps any republican votes or a handful of republican votes. i don't think that say very good message to send to the rest of the world the politics the republicans are playing in this. mccain, he wants to hav
. there was a passionate debate in this country about whether waterboarding is torture led in part by john mccain. that was easy for them to cover because it was so out there. romney didn't talk about it and i didn't hear it in the debates and the press, including the commentators have been too passive in my view, just like they were in the run up to the iraq war. it should be an issue. it should be debated. >> jane hall used to tangle with o'reilly. >> regularly. >> was this an enlightening debate? >> i think it was good. i think you did well and i think he shifted the terms of the debate, which he likes to do. first of all, he does not like nbc. going back to keith ooberman. he shifted it back to what he wanted to talk about and i thought you had a very substantive debate, which was a good thing. >> he wanted to talk about himself and how he felt i had wronged him and i was trying to get to higher ground. did o'reilly convince you that i was mistaken in saying i had made a glaring omission? >> he lost me in that because there was so much criminology to it. i would have said, in that discussion
